I knew John Flakelar, the designer of the fountain, and other leaders behind the original development of Kibble Park – John Phillips, Malcolm Brooks, Peter Turnbull and Kevin Booth, together with a litany of other Gosford civic leaders, who have built other parks including Brady Gully, Point Frederick, and the now-defunct Poppy Monument by Gosford waterfront.
I know they would be, and are, outraged at this unsolicited, unrepresentative swill of dishonest backroom manoeuvring.
Please stop this outrageous vandalism of removing a symbolic monument that as a fountain is a living pumping heart in Gosford, to (become) just a mess of rotting and rusting and out-of-place pipes in a Narara park.
This is outrageous and must be stopped – at least until we can have democracy in Gosford.
